I had a spinal fusion through my stomache over a year ago and I have pain where the scar is. I also can't stand the feeling of the skin around the scar?

In brief: There may have been

An injury to a sensory nerve leading to a neuroma that can be treated sometimes by injection or with topically applied medication or even some oral ones like neurontin (gabapentin).
Speak to your surgeon.

It sounds like you have a thickened scar. I would see a plastic surgeon.
